Traveling with dogs

A while ago, I came across this link about traveling with dogs. (This probably would have been a better thing to post during December, when more people were traveling. :-)) There were some great ideas in the article, and some great links to other helpful sites. I encourage you to check it out if you plan on traveling with your dog!

We were very lucky to have two dogs who traveled very well. Both of them would fall asleep almost immediately at the beginning of the trip. And somehow they knew the difference when we were just going to the dog park, and when we were on our way to Florida...

Actually a funny thing happened the first time we took Zoey. She was about 3 months old, and we went up to Asheville for Labor Day weekend. Every time we stopped the car, we would get out and walk her around and stretch. Then we'd get back in the car and as soon as we got up to speed she would let out a loud "BARK!" She'd be standing with her front paws on the console between us, her eyes as large as golf balls, looking back and forth to each of us as if she expected something. It always shocked/surprised/scared us! That trip was the only time she did that, though. (Thank goodness!)

Hi, Zoey!
